Ginny bleaches Johnny's sneakers for him as he lies in bed, unable to speak. This is a nice shout-out both to the fact that Johnny was so particular about his appearance and to what Feldman said about giving John control over the dying process. John struggles to say something, and he manages to say, "My mother." Ginny asks if he's hallucinating. Allegra (who I think is a nurse) says that sometimes, dying patients see people who have passed. Ginny tries to get John to look at her, and she even frantically offers him a cigarette from her purse to try to get him to revive. And then Johnny breathes his last. RIP, Mr. Sacramoni.
Anthony, Ginny's brother, comes to visit Tony and the guys and tell them that John passed away. Tony offers his condolences. Sil hands everyone shots, and Tony offers the typical, "What are you gonna do?" Paulie quotes the song "Black and White" for no apparent reason, but he also explains that he beat cancer himself, which is good to know. Tony offers up a toast and they all drink to John's memory.
Phil has a birthday party for what would have been his brother Billy's birthday. Phil announces to the assembled family that the bar seat he's standing near was Billy's favorite place in the whole world, and Billy would sit there and talk about his family. Phil places Billy's ashes above the bar and then asks the kids if they know who Leonardo Da Vinci is. One of the boys claims that he wrote The Da Vinci Code, which Phil's wife claims is a hideous book. Another girl correctly identifies Da Vinci, whom Phil calls "a great Italian." Turns out that Phil's family's name was originally Leonardo, but it was changed at Ellis Island to Leotardo, after "a stupid ballet costume." The kids seem bored with the history lesson and ask for cake, which Phil allows.
Phil sits at the bar alone, drinking and staring at his brother's picture. He tells Butchie that he'd like to live his life over, because he compromised everything. He spent twenty years in prison to protect assholes like Rusty and Doc. Phil brings up Tony Blundetto again, and how Phil never really avenged his brother's death. He thinks his family has been taking shit from people since Ellis Island. He shakes his head and says, "No more, Butchie. No more of this." I don't like the looks of this morose Phil Leotardo. It makes me nervous. A song that sounds like a military march ("Evidently Chickentown" by John Cooper Clarke) starts up as the camera pans down the line of photos of fallen soldiers: Carmine Sr, Gerry, Johnny Sack.
